Mom's Carrot Casserole Recipe

Rich and cheesy, this casserole is the very best way to eat carrots. Pretty orange slices peek out from under a bed of buttery cracker crumbs. My mom loves to cook and share recipes. She picked this one up from a dear friend. -Gloria Grant, Sterling, Illinois

"Very good. A nice change from sweet carrot recipes. However, I feel it needs something to make the cheese sauce creamier - mine came out a little dry. Maybe cream or sour cream. Will try next time."
